Welcome to the group, HillBilly. We will be coming up there to Arkensaw the end of May to see relatives in the Clarksville area and do some canoing/camping.
I'm glad you spelled the name of the state correct, as I always ask my mom (who was born/raised near Clarksville) about that.
Most everyone incorrectly spells it as Arkansas......which would be pronounced Kansas with an Ar in front. Do you ever hear anyone calling it Ar-Kansas, no. Where does anyone get that last s sounding like a w ?
Arkensaw it is.
